Bang enough rocks together and eventually you'll get civilization. It just takes a lot of rocks. And monkeys.
They need to remake 2001. It can begin with a capuchin throwing a stone flake in the air and then switch to a nuclear warhead falling on Moscow.

"We'll be saying a big hello to all intelligent lifeforms everywhere and to everyone else out there, the secret is to bang the rocks together, guys.”
Of course monkeys can do this. Why would it be strange?
It's quite simple, really: God needs a replacement for His wayward children; thus, He bestows the gift of knowledge upon the monkeys. Soon they shall all lift their paws and sing His praise, glory glory, amen.

The video seems to go out of its way to obscure this, but the monkey's aren't making stone tools intentionally. They're just breaking rocks for some unknown reason. They don't use them as tools. The broken rocks are indistinguishable from 'stone flakes' archaeologists have believed to be the earliest tools proto-humans made.
The story here is that archaeologists have been using the presence of stone flakes as evidence of tool making intelligence. But it turns out they can be made accidentally, casting doubt on when tool making first emerged.
THEY don't use the rocks. But have you ever considered the possibility that these monkeys might be sweatshop labour, manufacturing tools for bigger, meaner gorillas?

I want to know what Kirk Cameron thinks of this.
I'm dead serious. What's Kirk's take on this?
That rock flake has a good point.
